GRANDMA’s Fresh Peach Cobbler

1 month ago 711

Cobbler refers to an array of dishes popular across both the United Kingdom and United States that feature either fruit- or savoury-based fillings poured into a baking dish and covered by batter, biscuit or dumpling (in The UK) before baking. Many American southern recipes resemble thick-crusted pie with both top and bottom crust.

Cobblers originated in British American colonies where English settlers found it impossible to produce traditional suet pudding due to a lack of ingred*ents and equipment for its preparation, so instead used a method combining stewed fillings with uncooked plain biscuits or dumplings fitted together on top. Their name dates back as far as 1859 – it may derive from archaic word cobeler which meant “wooden bowl”.

1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup milk
5 -6 peaches, sliced

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 350deg F, pour melted butter into an 8×8 pan and whisk together flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and milk until mixed well before pouring onto the melted butter in your 8×8 pan. Finish it off by topping with slices of peach fruit!
Cover with 3/4 cup sugar (it might seem excessive, but use all). Cook until batter rises to the top and forms an attractive brown crust – approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
